Today is my stop on the blog tour for Hunter’s Revenge! You can read my review of book one, here.
Hunter by name – Hunter by nature: DI Hunter Wilson will not rest until his friend’s death is revenged.
DI Hunter Wilson is called to the scene of a murder. He is shocked to find the victim is his friend and colleague, George Reinbold. Who would want to harm the quiet, old man? Why was a book worth £23,000 delivered to him that morning? Why is the security in George’s home so intense? Hunter must investigate his friend’s past as well as the present to identify the killer and identify George’s killer. Hunter also finds a new supply of cocaine from Peru flooding HMP Edinburgh and the city. The courier leads Hunter to the criminal gang but Hunter requires the help of his nemesis, the former Chief Constable, Sir Peter Myerscough and local gangster Ian Thomson to make his case. Hunter’s perseverance and patience are put to the test time after time in this taught crime thriller.
You know you’re reading a fantastic series when the second book is even stronger than the first book. Val Penny does not disappoint this time around.
I love the interweaving relationships among the people connected to the case. I was instantly absorbed into this plot and was hungry to find out more all the way through. The twists and turns are strong, and Val Penny is certainly very talented when it comes to connecting the drama and suspense with a little bit of humor to create a fascinating murder mystery that I wasn’t able to guess from the beginning.
Many of the reviews have mentioned that this should be a TV show and I just want to say I concur! It would be a riveting and compelling show and I would definitely watch it.
I highly recommend this book if you love mysteries that keep you on the edge of your seat and give you compelling characters to learn about and love.
